Our Weasel Of The Week Nominees!

weasel

It’s time once again for the Watcher’s Council’s ‘Weasel Of The Week’ nominations, where we pick our choices to compete for the award of the famed Golden Weasel to a public figure who particularly deserves to be slimed and mocked for his or her dastardly deeds during the week. Every Tuesday morning, tune in for the Weasel of the Week nominations!

Here are this weeks’ nominees….

The Drudge Report!

The Noisy Room : The Drudge Report for taking up a leftie talking point against Ted Cruz this weekend in a HUGE HEADLINE that just happens to bash Christianity. It was incredibly offensive: ‘Ted Is The Anointed One’ – Holy Ghost Video Revealed – Dad Speaking In Tongues – Supporters ‘Lay Hands’ On Cruz At Rally. There was no mention of Donald Trump getting a similar blessing some time ago.

Per Fox News, bestselling author and senior editor at Conservative Review, Michelle Malkin, called Matt Drudge “anti-Christian” for his choice of headlines regarding an event involving Texas Sen. Ted Cruz, characterizing it as a “cheap tabloid shot” that exposes “ignorance and bigotry.”

The headline, posted to the Drudge Report Friday, involved a story of Cruz receiving the blessing of Pastor Gaylon Wiley, the man who not only baptized Cruz, but brought his parents, who’d been atheists, into the faith.

“Laying of hands” on someone who a person is praying for is not uncommon in many faiths and, as Malkin points out in her video, was done for Donald Trump in September of 2015. Malkin called this a “100 point font sized double standard.”

For being so in the tank for Trump that it is deemed okay to bash Christians in general just to take a cheap shot at Ted Cruz, Drudge should get a HUGE golden weasel.

Breitbart News

Bookworm Room : I nominate Breitbart News, which is so committed to the Trump candidacy that the organization turned on one of its own employees, even when video footage supported her version of events: It does indeed seem that a high level Trump aide assaulted Michelle Fields. If you’re going to identify yourself as a news agency — and hold yourself out as a true news alternative to mainstream media outlets that have abandoned journalism in favor of partisan advocacy — you destroy your credibility in the most weasel-ish of ways when you do exactly the same thing.

Make sure to tune in every Monday for the Watcher’s Forum.

And remember, every Wednesday, the Council has its weekly contest with the members nominating two posts each, one written by themselves and one written by someone from outside the group for consideration by the whole Council. The votes are cast by the Council, and the results are posted on Friday morning.

It’s a weekly magazine of some of the best stuff written in the blogosphere, and you won’t want to miss it...or any of the other fantabulous Watcher’s Council content.

One thought on “Our Weasel Of The Week Nominees!

  1. Michelle Fields is, and this is putting it very kindly, is a proven…. exaggerator. She’s made a number of false accusations and then never follows through. I don’t believe her this time either.

    Ben Shapiro wrote a column in 2011 lamenting the field of Republican candidates. He described Mitt as exciting as a baggie of air(or something like that) He said Newt while sharp was a loser. He went though the whole field like that.

    Then he laid out the qualities that would make a great candidate. Rich, well known, solid conservative principles…Then he named who he thought not only would shine like the sun in the nomination runup but who would crush Obama, hands down.

    The man he named was Donald Trump.

    So what changed Ben in the past 4 years? Maybe a little cashola?

    What a fucking hypocrite. Good riddance to him.
